Gene Description EPAS1, endothelial PAS domain-containing protein 1, is an alpha subunit member of the hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF), which is an oxygen sensitive transcription complex that when dysregulated can promote tumor progression (PMID: 29032465, PMID: 22931260, PMID: 28322821). EPAS1 mutations have been identified in paraganglioma (PMID: 22931260, PMID: 23533246), pheochromocytoma (PMID: 23533246), and hemangioblastoma (PMID: 26514359).
